Hey my lovely ones,

Wow, this weekend has been crazy! I had an academical symposium about German and Japanese film from Late Friday until late Sunday and wow, it was just a lot. I really liked it but it's sad that I didn't have any weekend, I'm writing this and will head to university right afterwards!  It was the very first time for me attending a symposium for my expertise, which is Japanese Studies. There were a lot of great people from Waseda and Yale University and it was kinda intimidating since they were all professors and we just little students. I took together all my courage though and asked a question (when there are sitting all these experts you don't wanna just ask a simple, boring question..). This may sound strange but it took me a lot of courage to do so because I didn't want to embarrass myself but my question was accepted, I got a nice answer and my teacher afterwards congratulated me to my courage because he said he too as a student was too shy to do so and we should practice as soon as we can. Although it was a lot of work and still is (I have to write a report of my impression in Japanese on this symposium which will be send to all these erai professors.. 4 pages done, 4 more to go.) I am greatful for the experience and I am eager to attend as many as I can because I kinda can see myself taking the academic path after I finished my master's course. But on to a completely different topic....

I have a serious first world problem. Like, it doesn't get anymore first worldly like this. I have won a Zalando voucher via a giveaway from lovely Jenni and I have no idea how to spend it. Like, there are so many possibilities! So many choices to make! I am really bad when it comes to vouchers. I usually never find anything when I have a voucher or when it's sale time. I usually only like the newest stuff which is super expensive at that time so yeah... screw me.

When I tried to look at Zalando's website I was extremely overwhelmed and had no idea where to go, it was just too much of everything! (BTW, same happened when I first went to Japan and almost didn't buy anything - it was just way too much that I couldn't orientate myself in the masses of products.) I then narrowed it down to certain brands or products and it made my search much easier. I am still absolutely not decided on what I should get but I thought I will share my favorites so far with you! :) 
I was really happy to find Iron Fist on Zalando's webpage because I think they have an amazing concept. Unfortunately all their items are quite expensive so maybe the voucher would be the time to spend it..? I also really do love that big weekender bag but I am not quite sure if I will use it as much as I hope. To be honest, I am a bit in love with the two zombie boots and might get a pair. I mean, it's winter here in Germany already and you can't go wrong with a pair of boots.

Of course, I could get a Superdry hoodie instead because I wanted one for so long. Or a hoodie from Naketano which usually is also too expensive.

Or I could totally get an outfit for Christmas or New Year's Eve!  As you can see, I am still not decided and I will wait until I find that one item I cannot live without. Until then, I am really grateful that I got to be so lucky and be the winner, thank you again Jenni (&Zalando :D)! I'll let you know if and when I decided on something ;D So far, I have to be strong being spoilt for choices. Let me know if anyone has a good recommendation when it comes to Zalando, any favorite brands? :)

Lots of love,

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
